In Belong Magazine's inaugural issue, Alissa Circle asks, "What is blogging anyways? Does anyone really even know what it is anymore?" I've been asking this question for the last year or so, along with the more confounding (to me) question, "Is anyone who doesn't have something to sell blogging these days? My first iteration of… Continue reading Where do we go from here?
image sourceI remember a time in the not-so-distant past when I considered myself a blogger. Now my blog is but a memory of those days, and my Blogger dashboard is littered with nearly-finished and some just-started drafts that I've been writing for the past few months. For some reason I haven't been able to get from… Continue reading Redefining balance
This is my 300th blog post in my 33 months of blogging! Blogging as a hobby, I usually save the stats analysis for the websites I have to maintain at work, but the other day I received a comment from a random visitor and wondered how she stumbled upon my blog.

Nothing comes.Finally, an idea. You jot a few things down. You spend more time than you are willing to admit writing… Continue reading To Blog or Not to Blog?
When I read Julie & Julia as my in-air entertainment last October, it resonated with me in a way I hadn't expected. I thought it would be fun to learn more about The Julie/Julia Project, but I didn't think I'd necessarily take anything away from it. Though I love to eat, French cuisine is not… Continue reading Julie, Julia, and me
